Happy Sewing Month!

September is national sewing month! To celebrate a month of sewing, I have a few sewing projects I've been wanting to try out. Posts soon to follow, but first I'd like to pay homage to where my love of sewing began.

I'm fairly new to the sewing world myself, but I've always been a part of it. My mom is an excellent seamstress, and has always inspired me to create. She was always sewing me clothes, matching doll clothes, bedding, curtains, you name it - she can sew it. When I go to the store and see a curtain panel for $30, it's her voice in the back of my mind saying, "You could make that for half the cost!" It's great.

So when I moved away & could no longer just pop in to use her's, I decided that it was time for me to invest in a sewing machine of my own.  And so has begun my own sewing journey. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. And I love that it didn't with me!

Happy Sewing Month to all the seamstresses out there!
